[applause] >> thank you. please sit down. i am excited and thrilled to be here with barack obama in this election year. i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago, i received a phonecall. i didn't recognize the area code and a phonecall was actually from kenya and i answered it and it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. he is the youngest son of barack obama senior, and he said dinesh, i am calling because my 2-year-old son is in the hospital. he has a serious chest condition and i wonder if you are willing to help me. i said are you at the hospital, george? he said yes and i said hand the phone over to the nurse. so he did and the nurse confirmed that george's son was sick with a chest infection. so i told george that would send him $1000 by western union but before

the country's economy to the cliff. president obama, when i interviewed him for the book said they were days away from having $5 billion in the u.s. treasury. that's it. now, that's half a day's federal spending. if you think about it, to let that happen -- not just the president, but the republicans -- could have said -- sent shockwaves through the country, could have done things to the american economy that tim geithner, the treasury secretary said would have been worse than the 1930s depression. >> sean: i mean, it's so dysfunctional. it's far worse than we ever said. here's what really bothers me in all of this. we have 25 million un- and under-employed americans. one in six americans in poverty. 49 million americans on food stamps in this country. we are really -- and nearly $6 trillion at the end of obama's first term in new debt. this is be a game anymore. this is about as serious a crisis as we have faced since the great depression and getting worse. >> and this was last year. they fixed it by postponing everything. >> sean: yeah. >> no cut, no tax increases. no sensible alinement o

of the state where tampa and orlando are and the miami metro area. .. we see college graduate group that obama lost by about 11 points in 2008. facing the most polls he's physically about even. i think that makes it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. f
